Description The data in this part of the release are orthomosaics that characterize the beach at the USGS DUring Nearshore Event eXperiment (DUNEX) site on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, NC. During September and October 2021, USGS and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) scientists conducted multiple field surveys to collect a topobathy elevation time series. Images of the beach for use in structure from motion were taken with a camera attached to a helium filled balloon-kite (Helikite). Agisoft Metashape (v. 1.8.1) was used to create orthomosaics and digital surface models (DSMs) with the collected imagery. DUNEX is a multi-agency, academic, and non-governmental organization collaborative community experiment designed to study nearshore coastal processes during storm events. USGS participation in DUNEX will contribute new measurements and models that will increase our understanding of storm impacts to coastal environments, including hazards to humans and infrastructure and changes in landscape and natural habitats. Collected data are part of field activity 2021-029-FA and related to field activity 2021-028-FA and 2021-032-FA. [More]
